“Dear publisher,”

Koma is learning to read these days and a sentence in one of her books made no sense to her. Being who she is, she wrote a letter to the authors to speak her mind.

Dad has been running all winter, spring, and summer and into fall. With the goal of running a half marathon in the fall, Dad maintained his program and crossed the finish line!

The zooooo! We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop at the zoo (thank you, membership!) and found a new play area there. The girls wanted to see an IMAX so mid-way we walked to the theatre and then the girls asked to return to the new area.

Our long weekend ended with a road trip. We decided to explore the downtown of a small city and also surprise the girls with an overnight stay a hotel waterpark. We discovered some neat parks, restaurants, shops, monuments, and outdoor displays. The girls loved the waterpark too, of course.

Fall break!

We surprised the girls with a Disney on Ice presentation after eating at a popular Italian joint. The place mostly is for carryout of their famous pizza but they offer a couple folding tables if any patrons choose to dine in. We loved the people watching and gobbled up the yummy pie (1/4 sheet!). Afterward, we found the arena and took in the many Disney characters who showed up on ice. We capped the evening with frozen yogurt!

Dad brought back some cheese which he had tasted there. It supposed to be served grilled so that was a nice treat to have when he returned.WP_20170928_09_21_27_Pro WP_20171007_21_40_49_Pro WP_20171006_17_15_37_Pro WP_20171001_10_14_48_Pro WP_20171001_10_10_43_Pro WP_20171001_10_08_31_Pro WP_20171001_09_57_10_Pro WP_20171001_09_56_06_Pro WP_20171001_09_52_18_Pro WP_20171001_09_28_06_Pro WP_20170930_11_06_50_Pro WP_20170930_10_50_58_Pro WP_20170928_18_06_13_Pro WP_20170928_17_56_03_Pro WP_20170928_12_29_01_Pro WP_20170928_09_21_35_Pro
